Guide to Parent Involvement. Parents as Adult Learners. Parent Participation Profile.
American Univ., Washington, DC. Adult Learning Potential Inst.
This document is the third of a series of four reports developed to provide a comprehensive overview of parent involvement, encompassing the family, parenting needs, and existing resources, in addition to current parent education approaches and practices. This Parent Participation Profile (PPR) is intended for use in needs assessment and program evaluation based on participant perceptions. Designed to provide useable information for program development and practices, it consists of two parts, the manual and the instrument itself. In the first section of the manual, a complete explanation of the PPP, including its general goals, specific objectives, and its design, along with a description of its pilot use in Texas, is provided. The second section of the manual focuses on how to administer the instrument, while the third section consists of a sample PPP with intermittent explanations of the more complex items. The complete PPP follows the manual. The PPP consists of forty-five items, most followihg a Likert-scale format. It addresses four areas that have significant bearing on parent education program designs. Those four areas are (1) previous participation, (2) attitudes about parent involvement, (3) handicapping conditions, and (4) participant demographics. It can be administered to parent participants prior to their entry into a program as a needs assessment for planning purposes, or as an evaluation at the completion of a program to determine program effectiveness.
